Greetings all. I called the UN (at 212-963-4475 then 0, 1 ask for security)
and asked for you all. They said that laptop bags and standard briefcases
are fine, even if they're larger than 14". They said just* no "suitcases"
or "carry-on bags"*. So, I think you will probably be fine with a
lightweight laptop bag.

Interestingly, they weren't aware of any conferences this weekend.
Hopefully that gets communicated to them soon. :)
